  • An official welcome ceremony at the National Palace in Mexico City
  • A “courtesy visit” with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto
  • Meetings with government officials, representatives of civil society, the diplomatic corps and the bishops of Mexico
  • A Mass in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe
